I hate Star Wars but I love needle craft.
30 feet of aida!?! Holey shiat.
I have trouble finishing  8x10 pieces, that's just crazy.

BTW- $20,000 is out of my price range but I'd gladly shell out $50-100 for a full size accordion fold art book version.
Kickstart that shiat already.

Crazy Star Wars fans actually wove this tapestry of their pointless franchise while Zapp was still killing them.

Is it all prequel? It looks like the OT is the last foot

Speaking as a Star Wars fan and a cross-stitcher, that thing is AWESOME.  Literally awesome, to wit: "
inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear; causing or inducing awe."  It would probably take me decades to stitch something like that (it took me about 3 years to finish my Teresa Wentzler "Castle Sampler".)

I don't think it's possible to not know how to cross stitch.  Not that it's easy, far from it, but anybody with one or more hands could start on a beginner piece with almost no experience and get started.  It's a pretty cheap hobby for beginners as well.

Cross stitch is one of those things where the name is also the instructions- like toothpick or hairbrush. It's literally stitching crosses.It's a great hobby- cheap, portable and easy to get started. I use heavily starched canvas with taped edges and no hoops. I work on small pieces that usually fit in my pocket so I can work on it anywhere.
The canvas is named after Aida Lovelace, the geek girl prototype and it lends itself well to 8-bit pixelated images so it's kind of the perfect geek craft. I'm working on cross stitched illustrations of some of my favorite circuit schematics with floral embellishments!

There's one--a graphic, not an actual textile--for Dr. Who.
